Being Mommy- The Best Job in the World

I really love being a mom! Yesterday, Zaria and I had the time of our lives. It was our 1st Mommy/Daughter day of 2011. I started this for Zaria a few years ago when she was just 3 years old. We normally choose several things to do or places to go(just us). One of our favorite days was in 2006. We dressed in formal attire and had dinner at a popular downtown restaurant. Everyone thought we were going to a wedding. The highlight for Zaria was when a gentleman took his hat off and bowed. She said, "Why did he do that mommy?" I said, "Because you are a princess."

Yesterday, our day started with picking up a half dozen chocolate covered strawberries that I ordered for Zaria. Chocolate Strawberries are her favorite! We then went shopping. Bath and Body Works was our first stop. Zaria loves the smell of its Signature Collection. Black Raspberry Vanilla is the scent she picked. We then ventured to Fairlane Mall. Claire's is the store that she likes getting her jewelry. I bought her a pair of earrings and a necklace. We had lunch in the Food Court. She chose Taco Bell(another one of her favorite's). Afterwards, we watched MegaMind at the AMC Fairlane. We had so much fun.

I knew she had a good time but when she posted that it was the best time ever on Facebook, it confirmed it for me. I can't wait until next month. I really don't know what could top this:)

And then I get an email today that I am a nominee for Mommy of the Month with a popular Mommy Blog site. By the way, please vote for me at

Being a mom is probably the single most important and rewarding role in the world. I am soooo happy that I have the charge to care for such a beautiful princess.


  1. Very nice! I'm so happy that I could contribute to the occasion!!! Monike Welch of Yum Delish 313-288-8133

  2. Aww...I've been thinking about starting mommmy/daughter dates for me and Moo. She's getting older and now is the time to really create that bond where she can feel comfortable coming to be about anything and letting her know that I'm here for her. Plus, with a new baby on the way, I don't want her to feel left out. Motherhood is absoultely the best job in the world hands down.

  3. @Monike Yes, they were indeed yummy. I can't wait to order a few more dozen for the chocolate party.

  4. @Yummama Congrats on your little bundle of joy. yes, I think you should spend some quality time with Moo before the baby comes. She will remember it forever.

  5. I feel that it so important for mothers to spend quality time with their daughters/children. From the toddler stages to the age of 5, up until the teenage years are the most precious and memorable time a child could have. Quality time spent will also promote a heathy adulthood. When your child becomes a parent, they can always reflect back on their childhood memories.
